Embarrassing admission… I truly do enjoy rhyming or alliterating the days of the week. Wasted Wednesday. Thirsty Thursday. Sunday Funday; which is probably the most proper name for the show that is going down at The Radio Room on Sunday, when England in 1819 and Ocean vs. Daughter will both be taking the stage.
England in 1819 is the literal meaning of the family that plays together, stays together. Starting out as a Father, Son, and Son trio, they hail from Baton Rouge, LA. While they live in East Baton Rouge Parish (a “parish” is the Louisiana word for “county” for all you uneducated folk) the boys grew up in the countryside of England. After moving back to the states, they fleshed out the band and added a drummer, giving their sound a more solid feel. What sound do they have you ask? Mix one part classical, one part post-rock, add in some Southern edge and a little bit of English introspective/flair and you’ll get England in 1819.
Ocean vs. Daughter is such a beautiful mutt. I say “mutt” in the most endearing way possible, I assure you. A mixture of Americans, Brits, and Czechs who found each other in the city of Prague, came together to create music with such a beautiful sound. With an assortment of strings, synth, drums, and keys, they weave together a gorgeous tapestry of songs, including one about your horrible ex dying in a bright, flaming fire. I think the Philadelphia City Paper (2011) sums up Ocean vs. Daughter the best…
Dreamy but never droney, Prague-rockers Ocean Versus Daughter are really good at the achingly beautiful thing. Things tend to start simply and starkly, maybe just the American-born Flanna Sheridan’s snow-angelic voice, some strings, a little piano. But as the melody expands and the sound adrenalizes with riffs and beats, pretty new sonic worlds open up. Smart stuff to sway to.
England in 1819 and Ocean vs. Daughter will be playing The Radio Room this Sunday (6/21/12) with Joie and Ghost in Glass!
